How to change splash screen

Post by forcefield » Fri Dec 26, 2003 6:22 am

Just for kicks I thought I'd change the splash screen. I found the file: splash.jpg.c But it's encoded with what seems to be called "DataToC". Is this a UUENCODE type thing or an internal program.

Just very curious...

In the BF tree, look for a folder called "release" then go to "datafiles" and there will be a file called datatoc.c. Compile this single file (e.g. gcc -o datatoc datatoc.c or something like that). Then run "datatoc splash.jpg" and it will be encoded into a jpg.c file. Make sure that the file is called splash.jpg when you feed it into datatoc, or else it won't compile into blender. Then, drop your new splash.jpg.c into the blender/source/blender/src folder.
